| - I believe that these lesson will be very helpful. However, it is a very large file (over 230 pages for those of you who have not looked at it yet) so it takes a while to open it. Do you know if the creators of this file have made smaller sections so that they'll be easier to view on the net?|

|All or nothing, I'm afraid... - To the best of my knowledge, it's only possible to download the entire document at once. Also, note that it doesn't consist of lessons, but only of a reference grammar. The people who produced it, at the Center for Applied Linguistics, did produce a couple of volumes of lessons, as well as tapes and a glossary, if memory serves, but I think only the reference grammar is available on the internet. |

|Further Pashto instructional materials - Here is the URL for the site that describes the Center for Appliid Linguistics' Pashto materials and explains how to acquire them: http://www.cal.org/pubs/pashto_p.html
Indiana University's Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) is also producing Pashto instructional materials; I don't think their materials are yet available to the public, but they do teach an intensive course in Pashto during their summer programs.
